121 Illegals Released By Obama Went On to Commit Murder

By on Wednesday, June 17, 2015

 The flood of illegal immigrants coming into America over the Obama years has led to many bad consequences, all ignored by those in government wanting open borders.  But for at least 121 families, those consequences are something they will never forget.
According to the Washington Times, 121 illegal aliens released back into American society by the Obama Administration went on to commit murder:
More than 100 immigrants whom the Obama administration released back into the community went on to be charged with subsequent killings, according to government data released Monday that raises more questions about whether immigration authorities are doing enough to detail illegal immigrants awaiting deportation.

In one case, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement acknowledged that its agents didn’t find out about an illegal immigrant’s death threats and court injunctions against him — which should have put him back in detention — until after the man was accused of murder.
That case, involving Apolinar Altamirano, is the latest instance of someone who went through the Obama administration’s deportation system and was released, only to go on to be charged with major crimes.
ICE officials say they don’t regularly notify local authorities when they release an immigrant and don’t have a way of finding out from those authorities whether a former detainee gets into trouble with the law, so they didn’t know whether Mr. Altamirano’s $10,000 bond should have been revoked.
“ICE was not aware of the injunctions against Mr. Altamirano until after his January 22, 2015 arrest for first-degree murder, armed robbery and related offenses,” the agency said in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, and Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican in whose state the killing occurred.
All told, 121 immigrants who were held but eventually released by ICE went on to commit “homicide-related offenses” from 2010 through 2014, the agency said.
Welcome to Obama’s America – where there is no coordination and information sharing between law enforcement agencies; where illegal aliens can walk out of ICE detention and right back into a life of crime.
The Washington Times goes on:
It said 33 of those were ordered released by immigration courts and another 24 were released because of a 2001 Supreme Court decision capping the time an immigrant can be detained to six months. But a majority of the releases were at ICE’s discretion.
In a statement Monday, ICE said that a criminal record isn’t enough to qualify for mandatory detention under agency policies.
“When making custody determinations, ICE performs an individualized review of the individual’s immigration history and criminal history, pursuant to the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA),” the agency said. “In accordance with the requirements of the INA, not all criminals are subject to mandatory detention and thus may be eligible for bond.”
Detention cannot be used as a further punishment for their crimes or for being in the country illegally, but rather must be used as a tool for further deportation.
Apparently, under the Obama Administration, the rights of illegal aliens are more important than the safety of U.S. citizens.  That sounds like a prescription for lawlessness and further senseless violence.
And, Americans are suffering real consequences of this “tolerant” policy as the Washington Times explains:
Critics who have been pushing for stiffer immigration enforcement said the violence rate for released immigrants is probably much higher and the 121 charged are only those who have been caught.
“Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime,” said Maria Espinoza, co-founder of the Remembrance Project, which advocates for victims of crimes committed by immigrants. “This further supports what we have been fighting for. The safety and welfare of Americans must be the priority of the administration and the Republican-led Congress.”
Don Rosenberg, whose son was killed in a traffic accident by an illegal immigrant driving without a license, said the government lacks the willpower to deport people and to do it quickly.
“These people can and should be deported. We have that option, and we don’t want to take it, and this is what happens,” he said. “I guess until somebody who has the responsibility to make these decisions has one of their loved ones killed, it’s going to continue to happen.”
It is high time for Congress to act to stop this flood of violent illegal aliens coming into this country.  This push by President Obama and the Democrats to create millions of new Democrat voters before the 2016 election is killing current American citizens.
No one believes the Democrats’ excuse any more that this is about humanitarian rights of the poor from around the world.  The world’s poor can be helped far more effectively in their home countries without bringing them all to America and putting them on welfare.
Sorry, even if some Democrats are motivated by charitable concerns, their empathy is misguided.  The first duty of American government is to protect American citizens.  By allowing foreign nationals to come to America and murder our citizens is dereliction of duty at the highest level by Congress and the President.
If our leaders won’t protect us, what good are they as leaders?
